Over the last few weeks, fungi have been showing up all over the property. The photographs that follow are just some of the species I have found. Unfortunately, I don’t have a name for any of them, but they are striking in their form and colour. Some may turn out to be the same species at different stages of growth.
I’ve indicated the type of environment each of them were found beneath the photographs.

I guess you have had a lot of rain lately, Lisa? I always like seeing the wild mushrooms, and your photos are beautiful. 🙂
It’s strange, in that we haven’t had all that much rain. April was wetter than May. I was reading a post from our local Field Naturalists on fungi growing despite the lack of rain. If you’re interested, the link is here They have posted some beautiful photos of fungi recently.
Nature manifests in different forms – the colors are terrific! Have a good Sunday! Take care, Lisa! 🙂 Fabio
Thanks Fabio, I hope to do a second post on fungi. Last year we had some interesting ones growing in June. Here’s hoping we have a wetter month! I hope you have a great day too! 🙂 It’s raining here! Lisa
HI Lisa, Sunny afternoon in San Diego and the temperatures are getting higher. Thanks for your interesting postings! You find so many things! My impression is that 15 acres are like the universe! 🙂 Thanks so much and have a great start of the week! Tomorrow is still Sunday for us, as you know. Take care and enjoy the rain! Warmest greetings from dry San Diego! 🙂
Your mention of San Diego brought back some happy memories. We were there for about a week three years ago – for a conference. Lovely city, and one day we’d like to return to have a better look around. Would you believe that San Diego is the place I bought my camera! Lisa
Really small world, Lisa! 🙂 Hopefully you will be able to come back. Cheers! 🙂
Your post makes me want to get out and search for fungi at our place.
I must admit, if it wasn’t raining, I would be out looking for more too!
The fungi in the second photo is a Laccaria species. This genus has species usually the same colour all over and wide spaced gills under the cap.
The third photo is a bolete, a fungi with pores instead of gills under the cap.
Lactarius eucalypti is a possiblity for the fouth photo.
For indentification purposes It helps if the side and bottom view of the fungi are shown.
Thank you! I appreciate you taking the time to let me know what they are. Next time I’ll capture the side and bottom view if I can.
